At a point in time, the Old Ones will awaken and become an active player. They begin to reveal themselves and move, with potentially devastating outcomes. You’ll need to prepare wisely for the awakening and may have to cooperate with others to defeat the most dangerous Old Ones.Build a port, construct railways, mine resources, farm for food,recruit military units and unique personalities…and prepare for the Awakening of The Old Ones for a fight for your lives! Will humanity prevail or will the Old Ones wreak their revenge in AuZtralia?.

Calimala – PREORDER

The Arte di Calimala, the guild of cloth finishers and merchants in foreign cloth, was one of the greater guilds of Florence, who arrogated to themselves the civic power of the Republic of Florence during the Late Middle Ages.

In Calimala, the players act as members of the guild, produce and trade cloth, and gain prestige by delivering their goods to foreign markets, while contributing to the construction of buildings, and sponsoring artworks in Florence.

The players assign their employees to various streets within the city. They stay on their assigned places for awhile, carrying out actions several times whenever other employees arrive. Eventually, they are promoted into the city council and trigger scorings for all players.

Calimala won the distinguished “Hippodice” game authors´ competition in 2016.

Fool! – PREORDER

FOOL! is a card-shedding and trick-taking card game where the object is to empty your hand, but also to still score points! You don’t need to win every trick, but you need to stay in the round. If you play the lowest card in a trick, you are the FOOL!, and must pass during the next trick, and therefore you will not be able to get rid of another card. At the end of a round, negative points are scored for cards still left in your hand. Positive points are scored if you get rid of all of your cards, except if you were the FOOL! at the end of the hand, then you score nothing! Be careful or you will become the… FOOL!

FOOL! is a reprint of the 1995 Friedemann Friese game Foppen, but with new 2nd edition rules, more cards, and allowing up to 8 players!

Kanban: Driver’s Edition – PREORDER

Kanban — the Japanese word for “billboard” — is a term for the visual cues that might be used in a lean, efficient assembly line in order to expedite and smooth workflow. These signals get the workers what they need, where they need it, when they need it to create a just-in-time (JIT) production system.

The setting for the game Kanban: Driver’s Edition is an assembly line. The players are ambitious managers who are trying to impress the board of directors in order to achieve as high a position as possible in the company and secure their careers. With promotions come advantages at the factory, such as more space to store precious materials and greater prestige to accelerate your ascent. Through solid management, you must strive to shine next to your peers. You need to manage suppliers and supplies, improve automobile parts, innovate — anything to stay on the cutting edge, or getting your hands greasy on the assembly line in order to boost production. You must exercise wisdom in choosing which projects you should start, selecting only those that will give you the upper hand and shunning those that will bog you down or cause the unthinkable — failure — which would diminish you in the eyes of the board.

Over the course of the game, you persuade the board and the factory tender to help you develop and improve automobile parts. You make shrewd use of the outside suppliers and the limited factory supplies in order to appropriate needed part when the suppliers come up short. Because the factory must run at optimum efficiency, production doesn”t wait for you or for mistakes.

Like the process itself, Kanban: Driver’s Edition proves to be both innovative and rewarding. Game mechanisms tightly tied to the automobile manufacturing theme include:

  • The factory manager is a game-driven non-player character with two modes of play (“nice” or “mean”) to offer a friendly or more competitive gameplay environment.
  • Two independent player-influenced game timers — the factory production cycle and work week clock — provide timing tension to the game, trigger intermediate scoring phases, and factor into the game end conditions.
  • A simulation of the factory assembly line with spatial point-to-point movement adds an element to the game that requires optimal timing.
  • A design and innovation department, leveraged to manipulate the value of the various car models and component upgrades produced within the factory, drives the economy of the game.
  • Departmental training and certification tracks provide players a means to operate more efficiently.

If you want a seat on the board someday, you need to show that you can keep a complex machine running smoothly, efficiently, with everything happening just at the right time. Kanban: Driver’s Edition is a pure Eurogame focused on economics and resource management that puts you in the driver”s seat of an entire production facility, racing for the highest level of promotion.

New for this edition:

You work in a factory focused on lean production. You must impress Sandra,the factory manager, who will review your performance, and keep the factory ticking like a clock. Depending on the game play experience you want, you set the difficulty level as either “Nice Sandra” or “Mean Sandra” mode, an easy-going or tough boss!

Kanban: Driver’s Edition is a Limited Edition of the critically acclaimed Kanban: Automotive Revolution released in 2014. Kanban is designed by the famous game designer, Vital Lacerda. Due to Mr. Lacerda’s amazing work in the game industry, Stronghold Games is proud to place this game in The Great Designers Series, which recognizes the most renown game designers in the world. Kanban: Driver’s Edition is #9 in The Great Designers Series.

This game will not be reprinted after 2018.
